Best Pizza in Berlin
Finding the best pizza in Berlin is not as easy as it sounds.
First of all there are all different types of pizzas, from dripping with tons of cheese to the thin and crusty ones that follow more the NY slice tradition.
Furthermore you will quickly discover that there is an Italian restaurant or Pizzeria at every corner of a street. At least it feels like that way.
So how are you going to find the best pizza in Berlin without eating pizza every day for the next 20 years – that is how long it would probably take to try all of them just to start all over again, because another couple of hundred awesome pizza places opened up in the meantime.
I guess you get our point.
So to help you out and save you from eating bad pizza we put together our list of the absolute best pizzas in Berlin.
All Best Pizzas in Berlin on a map
1. Zia Maria
You might be surprised about our No.1 pick for the best pizza in Berlin. But yes, we did choose Zia Maria even though they don’t offer a traditional style round pizza.
Rather you are choosing 2-3 types of pizza that will then be delivered in slices.
You already see the main advantage here, instead of having to make the hard choice between Pizza Salami and Pizza Funghi, why don’t have both?
Seems logical, right? But apart from the choice of several types of toppings, Zia Maria also can score with a very thin crust with just the right amount of crunch.
And to top it all off they have a few creations that you do not get everywhere. Don’t worry, we will not spoil it here, you need to find out for yourself which ones.
So if you are around Prenzlauer Berg make sure you check out one of their two locations with what we think is the best pizza in Berlin right now.
Locations: Winsstraße 21 and Pappelallee 32a
2. Standard Serious Pizza
There are not many pizza places in Berlin that are that serious about great pizza, I mean they even put it in their restaurant name.
Located in Prenzlauer Berg close to Mitte district and with very nice staff and interior design this Standard Serious Pizza is one of the best places in Berlin for Pizza.
Standard Pizza made it their life goal to serve original Neapolitan pizzas in Berlin. That means a big crust, real ingredients (nothing canned, not even the freshly squeezed tomatoes) and a lot of preparation.
To make the dough of a pizza Neapolitan it needs a traditional dough kneader and then you leave the dough for at least 24h.
After that you just need to add all the fresh ingredients, put it in the tradtitional cupola furnace and wait a few minutes.
Location: Templiner Str. 7
3. I Due Forni
When talking about the best pizzas in Berlin there is no way around I Due Forni, a true Berlin pizza institution.
I Due Forni actually is even part of a little Pizze empire here in Berlin, as the owners not only opened up I Due Forni in Prenzlauer Berg, but also Il Ritrovo in Friedrichshain and Il Casolare in Kreuzberg.
So what can you expect when visiting one of these 3 places?
First of all they have amazing pizzas and their restaurants are always loud and lively. So if you plan on going on a romantic date there might be better pizza places in Berlin.
But if you love the vibe of Italy here in Berlin and a nice thin pizza with some unusual toppings then you will love this place.
Just one warning so that you are not surprised, the staff is known to be a bit rude and unfriendly. So don’t act surprised if you get yelled at because you pronounced something wrong, we warned you.
Location 1: Schönhauser Alle 12
Location 2: Gabriel-Max-Str. 2
Location 3: Grimmstr. 30
4. Spaghetteria Loreta
Don’t be fooled by the name, Spaghetteria Loreta has apart from great pasta also some of the best pizzas in town.
We need to add here that the pizza is more a simple style pizza with a great crunchy crust and traditional toppings such as salame, funghi or ham.
But in combination with the great staff (especially the cook and owner Luigi who seems to spend every single second in the kitchen), awesome food and the unbelievably low prices Spaghetteria Loreta is the perfect place for a quick business lunch as well as a relaxed dinner at night.
Location: Prenzlauer Allee 175a
5. Pizza Nostra
I guess it is already a good sign if food delivery drivers from Foodora and Deliveroo are lining up outside a restaurant.
And they have good reason to do so as the pizza from Pizza Nostra is just unbelievably tasty.
With a tradition of more than 100 years of making the best pizzas this family has brought Pizza Neapolitan style to Berlin in 2008 and made a lot of Berliners happy since then.
If you are not familiar with Pizza Neapolitan style in short these pizzas have usually a thin and soft crust and are not overloaded with cheese such as the American style pizzas.
One tip though, the pizzas taste way better when eating freshly out of the over rather than being delivered for 10min or more. Seems like Pizza Neapolitan style is a diva.
Location: Lychener Straße 2
6. Fellini Pizza
One of our personal favorites is Fellini Pizza in Berlin Weissensee.
If you have not heard of Weissensee yet in connection with great pizza and food in general then you are probably in good company.
Weissensee has still a lot of catching up to do. But thanks to Fellini Pizza Weissensee is now on the map of a few pizza hungry foodies.
We should probably not tell you this secret, but if you are really really nice they will even take orders for pizzas with different toppings per half.
Make sure to order at least one half of your pizza as Bianca style, which means no tomatoe sauce, but with Mozzarella, blue cheese, walnuts and – most importantly – pear. Yes you heard right – pear.
And if you are really really really nice they might even fulfill some weird special requests such as cutting your rucola. But who actually requests that, right?
Location: Langhansstraße 151-152
You may have noticed that most of our favorite pizza places are concentrated in the East.
However there is help for you if you are stranded in the West and crave an awesome wood oven pizza.
Prometeo is one of the most authentic pizza restaurants in Berlin – with great funny staff and just unbelievably tasty pizzas.
And best of all if you happen to be around on a Thursday after 5pm they have a pizza special offer – including a pizza, desert and a shot afterwards for 10€.
Location: Goebenstraße 3
8. Papa Pane di Sorrento
If you are on a romantic date and at the same time you still want to stuff your face with an incredibly awesome pizza we heavily recommend making a reservation at Papa Pane di Sorrento.
Located in the busy Mitte district and with very nice staff and interior design this Pizzeria just has an unbeatable package.
Of course they also serve some awesome pizzas. Which is an important detail as we are here for the food, remember?
If we need to criticize anything then it would probably be their website. I mean it is not 1999 anymore.
Location: Ackerstraße 23
9. Centro Italia
If you are an avid reader of our website, which we just assume now, you have probably already stumbled upon Centro Italia a couple of times.
But other than being the place to go for all your Italian grocery shopping and some fantastic sandwiches for lunch Centro Italia also has some great pizzas to offer.
Funnily most of the time when ordering pizza the nice staff will ask you if you are sure as they are using a deep frozen pizza dough instead of making that freshly. But in our opinion they make up for that with the great toppings and the amount of cheese (if you like cheese a lot) they put on their pizzas instead.
Location: Greifswalder Str. 80c, 10405 Berlin
